Stephen King on games & violence
April 06, 2008
I used to think that the whole games & violence issue was over or that at least I should not waste my time on it. However, it may be dead but its corpse is still breathing! Part of the growing pains of videogames going from mainstream towards pervasive cultural activity is that you still have to convince people with little videogame experience that it's quite hard for videogames to actually harm players.
It's now the turn of writer Stephen King (or Esteban Rey, as I used to call him when I was into his books, about 20 years ago) to point out the stupidity of laws banning the sale of violent videogames.
